Title:   Krater, pictorial
Category:   Pottery
Description:   From a krater, brown on buff.
ADDENDA 2018: Three sherds mended into two non-joining sections of a krater.
The exterior decoration consists of a medium band near the rim, and a narrow band running below the handle zone. In the handle zone there are hatched triangles with part of a pictorial motif, probably a ship.
The interior is monochrome. The paint is thick and evenly applied, fired somewhat unevenly red to dark brown. The interior is heavily work, possibly from use-wear since the exterior is very well preserved. There are no traces of burning.
